Camfil Air Filtration Solutions for Schools and Universities

July 8, 2021

When we think of air pollution, many of us focus on outdoor air pollution, but did you know that indoor air pollution can be just as impactful on your health? EPA’s Science Advisory Board (SAB) has ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health and “indoor levels of pollutants may be two to five times — and occasionally more than 100 times — higher than outdoor levels.” This can seem alarming when most people spend around 90 percent of their time indoors (EPA). While reducing outdoor air pollution is extremely important, these studies should make improving your indoor air quality one of your top priorities.  

Proper indoor air quality is especially important in our schools and universities. Without clean indoor air, students, teachers and staff’s attendance, comfort and performance can be negatively affected. The experts at Camfil have provided reliable solutions for improving indoor air quality in schools and universities, even for those with special areas like gyms, pools areas, industrial shops and laboratories.  

Here are a few solutions from Camfil to improve indoor air quality:  

      1. FARR 30/30®: With its industry leading 5-Star ECI Rating, the Camfil Farr 30/30 sets the standard for medium efficiency air filtration. When used as a prefilter, a stand-alone HVAC filter, or as the main filter in custom data room air conditioning units, the Farr 30/30 will remove nuisance dusts and staining particles and increase the life of downstream final filters by removing contaminants that shorten the life of final filters. Using a mechanical efficiency to provide MERV 8 and MERV 8-A performance levels, the Farr 30/30 will maintain its efficiency throughout the life of the filter.

      2. DURAFIL® ES²The Durafil ES2 offers high efficiency particle removal down into the sub-
        micron particle range to protect the most sensitive semiconductor and electromechanical equipment from contamination. Its glass mat media maintains efficiency throughout the life of the filter and its increased media area ensures maintained low pressure drop and longer filter life. The Durafil ES2 can save 40% or more in energy expenditures when compared to competitive products.

      3. HI-FLO® ES: The Hi-Flo ES uses a Camfil-exclusive high loft micro fine glass media to capture particles down into the sub-micron particle range to protect data center equipment from contamination. The Hi-Flo ES may be used as the only filter in a single-stage system eliminating pressure drop and service requirements associated with two-stage filtration systems that require a prefilter. Available in MERV 11, MERV 13, MERV 14 and MERV 15, its MERV and relative MERV-A testing values are equivalent ensuring that performance is maintained throughout filter life. 

      4. The Camfil MultiTrack GlidePack®: The Camfil MultiTrack GlidePack is the housing of
choice for new or retrofit installations. It is designed to have less than one-half of 1% leakage from the housing to the conditioned space and less than one-half of 1%
 leakage across the filters. This ensures that all of the air moving through the system is treated by the air filters. Only a well-designed housing can ensure that the system efficiency matches the air filter efficiency.

Improving indoor air quality is crucial for every application year-round, but now is a great time to make those improvements over the summer with limited building occupancy. Make sure school staff and students return to a safe, healthy, and comfortable space with proper maintenance and air filtration.
